Contributed anonymously: To be a legend, and to be forever immortalized in song it takes more than to just being able to sell millions of records (selling has nothing to do with talent), more than being able to shake it fast, and more than just pure vocal talent. You have to be able to touch the hearts and souls of people, you need to be able to connect with them, and show them you are human too, and not some one who’s above it all, you need to show people you are real and you go through life normally, and you experience emotions like pain, and sadness as well, instead of just being happy all the time and making love, cause real life isn’t like that and people won’t see you as real, you’ll end up being just an image. To put a twist on sprite’s slogan, I believe image is nothing and talent is everything, cause if you take away the image what’s left?
Aretha has “R.e.s.p.e.c.t”, Michael Jackson has “Thriller”, Mariah has “Hero”, Whitney has “I will always love you”, Marvin Gaye has “What’s Going On,” The Beatles Have “Hey Jude,” Ray Charles has “Georgia,” Elton John has “Candle in the wind,” Tina Turner has “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, of course I only named just a few but point being the music industry is changing, it’s no longer an industry of people singing songs of substance (half of the lyrics to today’s biggest hits make no sense), so called artists are singing about nothing, it’s an industry full of overnight #1 artists that turn out number one songs with weak lyrics, and weak vocals, and hot beats. Very few of today’s “artists” will stand the test of time and be immortalized with their music. In my opinion, I believe that Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” will be listened to for decades to come, and Alicia Keys’ “Fallin,” I can’t see any of the rest of today’s artists songs being around for another 10-20 years.
